Stayed here thrice on different occasions. It is a decent hotel with small and neat rooms. It is IMHO the best hotel of bada bazar area due its location. There are several other lodge style hotels but this is a proper hotel with a good restaurant called girnar which serves good north indian food

The rooms are small and not maintained. the linen is dirty. Bathroom quite small and not clean. The Girnar restaurant is very good and has excellent food and is a pure veg restaurant. the location of this place is good. Very centrally located and near to metro station and burra bazaar. A average hotel for a very short stay.

Location is good for business travelers but rooms are small and old. Although they are revonating some rooms but still much improvement is required. The lift is very noisy and need improvement. Average hotel for business travelers.

The rooms of the hotel are clean and maintained. they are a little small but adequate looking at the locality where it is located. It is in close proximity to Burabazar the business hub of Kolkata and metro train is at a walkable distance. The food is good and the restaurant is a pure veg restaurant

Just a place where you should stay and be concerned only about your business. Don't expect too much. The rooms are very old some were being renovated. The bathrooms are small and no modern amenities are present in it. Room are good in size but beds are old along with all the furniture. Sleep quality is good. The lift is... More

I stayed two nights in this hotel.The neighborhood is very authentic and full of locals. The subway train station is close by so it is easy to explore other parts of the city. The staff spoke clear English and were very helpful. I felt safe leaving my things in my room and security was 24 hours. The room was clean... More

Centrally Located near Howrah Station, in a busy market area, well connected with metro station at a walking distance. A more-than-decent place to stay for a short business trip in the city. Vegetarian food from the hotel's restaurant is a delight. A little work on providing cleaner linen, floor mats and a wi-fi connection would have been appreciated.

The Hotel is very centrally located in proximity to the market and business. It is also very reasonably priced. However it needs few improvements to qualify as a good business hotel. Rooms were fair. Initially the linen in the room was not very clean, however they immediately changed it when I objected. Food in their restaurant was excellent and the... More
